Tulip Magnolia Petals
This is the same petal photographed each way. The petal is still folded over as if to reveal yet another beauty secret. Speaking of beauty secret, here's yet another.
Magnolia liliiflora (variously known by many names, including Mulan magnolia, Purple magnolia, Red magnolia, Lily magnolia, Tulip magnolia, Jane magnolia and Woody-orchid) is a small tree native to southwest China, but cultivated for centuries elsewhere in China and also Japan. It was first introduced to English-speaking countries from cultivated Japanese origins, and is thus also sometimes called Japanese magnolia, though it is not native to Japan. source Wikipedia
